The star of Girls is having a fan girl moment.

With Jamie Dornan cast as Christian Grey this week, Lena Dunham has taken to Twitter and made it clear: she's on board with the selection of this British actor. Very, very, very much on board.

"I'm a monstrous @JamieDornan1 fan," Dunham Tweeted in response to the casting.

She then referenced a BBC Two crime drama that featured Dornan as a serial killer and added:

"Wasn't allowed to be attracted to him on The Fall bc he played a sexmurderer. 50 Shades is my big chance... Wait, Christian Grey isn't a murderer right?"

Doran, of course, is taking over for Charlie Hunnam, who was originally chosen to lead the film adaption of this novel… but who then dropped out for unknown reasons.

The 31-year old portrayed Sheriff Graham on Once Upon a Time Season 1 and has no major big screen experience in the States.

But have you seen these shirtless Jamie Dornan photos? There's a reason most women aren't exactly objecting to this news.

Dunham - who is dating fun. guitarist, Jack Antonof - hilariously concluded that she once dated someone like Christian, writing:

"(Wistfully) I had my own Christian Grey once. But he used a towel for a bed sheet and had a fat friend named Jeff."

Are you happy with Jamie Dornan as the Fifty Shades of Grey male lead?
